Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Types of Children
Many types of children can be invented, whiny, destructive, loud, smelly, mean, wonderful, respectful, ect, but all can be placed into one of two types.
Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Obedience in mind not just in outward action and appearance.
It is easier to have a disobedient heart than a disobedient mouth.
2nd Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
The promise to those who obey God
Jeremiah 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
Colossians 3:20 ALL means everything.
Children of Satan are defined as AntiChrist
There are many millions of "good people" in this world, those who have done wonderful things and are kind, giving, understanding, caring, etc. But we know that a mans works do not save him (Ephesians 2:8-9) only faith in Christ saves (John 14:6).
We know that there are two spiritual fathers, God and Satan the children of satan are not only those who worship him by blood sacrifice at an altar.
1st John 4:3-6, 1st John 2:22-23
He is antichrist!
Children of God are (or should be) defined by
God wants us to live pure and Holy lives, being obedient to His word.
1st Peter 1:13-16 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
1st Corinthians 6:19-20
Many people say that things like street preaching, passing out the gospel, and being a public witness for Christ are pointless, many believe that unless you see profit (even spiritually) it isn't worth doing.
Gods word says.
1st Corinthians 1:18,21
Luke 24:46-48 Christ explains why He lived died and rose again, so we could preach His gospel! And YE are witnesses!
We should not be witnesses because we're told to, because its profitable, or because its fun. Even if not a single person accepts Christ as a result of our witness we should still do it because it PLEASES GOD!
As a child we must find out what pleases and helps our parents and DO IT NO MATTER THE COST OR SUPPOSED INCONVENIENCE TO OURSELVES
